Virtual Museum Trip: The Guggenheim

May 26 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Location: Online

The Library usually teaches community members how to use virtual reality technology on Tuesday afternoons under normal circumstances. Even though we are currently closed due to the public health crisis underway, we still want to direct community members’ attention to virtual museum trips they can take online.

The Library is connected to 24 museums and parks in the Greater New York City area and lends New Canaanites museum passes to these institutions when open. Virtually visit the Guggenheim this month to learn about the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building, view its magnificent collections, and more.
